Eastern Rail Yard

To complete the development, two platforms must be constructed to bridge over several active rail road tracks. The finished buildings will extend through the platform and rise above.

The platform and buildings above the Eastern Rail Yard will be supported by a total of 300 caissons, ranging from four to five feet in diameter and 20 to 80 feet in depth, which will be drilled deep into the bedrock in strategic locations between existing railroad tracks. The platform on the Eastern Rail Yard will utilize 25,000 tons of steel and 14,000 cubic yards of concrete, weighing more than 35,000 tons.

The project is excpected to reach completion in 2024.
